All my FC pictures will go online tomorrow night. :)

In other news, it seems that Fidel Castro is retiring. I wasn't expecting that. :o

Just a couple of things before I have breakfast.

Every morning and evening when I go outside for a cigarette I can hear the coyote's howling. :D

And here's another picture of Radinov at FC, furnished by [ profile] casidhe.

For those of you who didn't see this at the FNL at FC this year, you so missed out. When we saw this we were in stitches! XD

So here's the video on YouTube, hidden behind a cut. Seriously NSFW. XD

[ profile] damonblackpaw and I are currently in Montana after a two day drive from Boulder Creek, through Nevada, Idaho, and then into northern Montana. We're staying with Damon's parents.

There is snow EVERYWHERE.

Don't berieve1 me? Observe these pictures:

We'll be staying here until Wednesday next week (6th Feb) when we head back to Portland. I should be around Portland for the 7th Feb and then I'll be flying back to the UK on the 8th Feb.

In other news, I want to see Cloverfield badly. :D

Tonight after having chinese at a wonderful restaurant I got (sorta) drunk and then went dancing in fursuit. That was so amazingly awesome. I'm still bouncing off the walls right now. ^_^

No pics of dancing just yet though. [ profile] rustyfox will have some later.

This has to be the cutest picture from the con.

The girl inside the fox suit had to be no more than 10 years old, and she was enjoying herself so much! It was such a heart-warming sight. :)

I went to Static and RockWolf's party last night, which was about six floors directly below us.

Now looking out over the balcony I can see the aftermath.

Plans for tomorrow include: Fursuiting and hanging out, possibly a trip to a vodka place.

That is all. :)

Today looks kinda like a normal Monday, but I can tell you that for me it isn't.

Because in three days time I'll be in Portland. :D

Extra News:

And because I was bored I made a forum sig:

I wonder who can name all of the six images on the right of the sig? I might have to get a special prize for the person who can tell me exactly what's in the top right image. ;)
graafen: (Default)

My question to those of you who are going, what would you like to hear that isn't in that list? All will be considered. :)

So, comment plz. :>

To make my trip to Manchester Airport on the morning of 17th January easier, I'm going to be spending the afternoon/night over at [ profile] cavebearranting's place (in Leeds) and then early in the morning I'll be getting a taxi from his place to Leeds Train Station, catching the 05:55 train direct to Manchester Airport, arriving at 07:12. A bit over three hours later and I'll be on a plane flying to the USA!

As is usual I am incredibly excited about the journey. I'm looking forward to seeing my friends again and to getting some hardcore con action done. ;D

In the meantime I'm probably just gonna sit around and squee a lot. XD

Oh, I forgot to mention earlier; it has been confirmed that I shall be doing some Metal/Punk DJing at FC08. :D

Of course this makes me really fucking happy. :D

As far as I currently know, I'll be DJing on Friday night (technically Saturday morning) from 00:15 to 02:00. This could change depending on how things pan out but despite the late running I'm more than happy to be doing this. :D

And another really awesome thing is that [ profile] godzuki will be DJing just before me. :D

Oh, and in case you're wondering where we will be DJing, it'll be the mezzanine area near Main Stage (top of the stairs).

So, if you're going to FC and want any requests now is a Good TimeTM to let me know and I'll try to work them in. Comments are fine. :)

In five weeks time I'll be in Portland, OR (will have arrived seven hours earlier, at 5pm PST). I'll probably be in bed with [ profile] damonblackpaw too. ^^

I'll be in and round Portland for six days before Damon and I leave for FC on the 23rd Jan (Wednesday). We're gonna be driving down from Portland to FC, hopefully on the I-5 (or Route 101 if I-5 is affected by adverse weather), setting off early in the morning and probably arriving late afternoon/evening.

Just in case you're wondering I'll only be taking one fursuit with me to FC, Graafen. The reason for this will be kinda obvious if you read my journal regularly, but just in case you've missed it I'll be collecting my husky fursuit (Radinov) at FC and it'll be a pain brining three fursuits back to the UK unless I ship one of them.

Speaking of Radinov, the DTD was received by the fursuit maker yesterday so all that remains for me to do is to send the last of the money owed (which happens on Tuesday 18th Dec).

After FC Damon and I are planning to speak sometime with [ profile] dark_fang and [ profile] ysengrin, and then we'll be heading up to see his parents in Montana, then finally back to Portland before I fly home.

I'm actually looking forward to meeting Damon's parents. He's told them a lot about me and they seem pretty cool about our relationship. :)

And I guess that's it for now. Roll on January! :D

There's only five weeks (and three days) until I fly to America for three weeks. :$

Time is running by fast!

Can't sleep right now due to uncertainty regarding money, so I did a few calculations using Gnumeric.

After bills and expenses for December (paid November 23rd) I will have left over: £130 from £1012. This is emergency money.

After bills and expenses for January (paid December 18th) I will have left over: £200 from £1012. This too is emergency money.

This means two things.

1: Sorry Badger, that arrangement we made earlier today is not doable for me. If you don't mind waiting until after FC for our arrangement then I'll be in a much better position financially. If that's not possible then it's only my loss and I hope that you're able to find someone else to buy those items from you.

2: Depending on how much my secret project budgets to I may have to put him back until after New Year, giving me two weeks of work time.

There, I feel much better now having written that down. :)

EDIT: The moon, although not full, is shining brightly through my window. :D

There's only 74 days (or 2 months and 13 days) before I fly to Portland on the 17th January.

All that's left to do now is the following:
1) Ressurect Thalyi. 1
2) Get a large holdall.
3) Book a taxi/airport shuttle from Wakefield to Manchester Airport.


1 As mentioned on previous posts I am aiming to ressurect Thalyi for FC2008. The exact details of this are a secret that only certain parties know about, but all in all I should be able to get it done within the 16 day limit I have given myself (eight weekends from 24th November onwards). All in all he shall be revealed at FC2008.

An old blue Scot called Dill... or possibly renniD nezorF )
Yes I'm full of Animuation quotes and references today, mostly because I'm happy.

Why am I happy? My tickets for FC have arrived and I've found my passport! *dances excitedly*

Well it's time that I got my flight for Further Confusion sorted. For now here's a prelim of what I'm gonna do.

Thursday 17th January 2008

Fly to Portland (PDX) from Manchester Airport (MAN), due to arrive sometime between 5pm and 6pm Pacific Time (1am to 2am UTC).
Spend just under a week in Portland with [ profile] damonblackpaw and other folk.

Wednesday 23rd January 2008

[ profile] damonblackpaw and I drive down to San Jose, California for Further Confusion. Spend time with awesome people for just under a week.

Monday 28th, Tuesday 29th or Wednesday 30th January 2008

Head back towards Portland, swinging by Damon's parents place for a couple of days.
Spend the remaining days in Portland.

Friday 8th February 2008

Head back to the UK (MAN).


So that's the plan for now. Damon and I will obviously be refining this as time goes on.

Yay. ^_^

Some of you may have noticed that I'm heading up the Metal/Punk/Rock shindig that's happening at ConFuzzled, entitled: Furries Rock.
This I am quite happy about. :D

The question is, does anyone still think [ profile] twitchwolf and I should do the same thing again at FC08?

Comments appreciated.
